Arum: Usyk's mandatory defense won't be in the way of a fight with Fury

Bob Arum, the head of Top Rank and promoter of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, responded to a question about a fight with WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO world champion Oleksandr Usyk.

Usyk's mandatory defense won't be an obstacle because the WBA has made it clear to the IBF that it's not the first priority. The WBA has first priority, and the challenger there is Daniel Dubois, who is being handled by Fury's co-promoter Frank Warren. And he will give the go-ahead for a unification fight with Oleksandr.
